                    not in a sporting event, but former football and track star o.j. simpson leading cops on a freeway car chase, with the tv helicopters following the whole chase and all the people pulled over to the side of the road getting out of their cars, some even had signs like go o.j. go. at the time o.j. was considered a fugitive for failing to turn himself in as he was supposed to, in a double murder case. simpson was found to be innocent and vowed to catch the real killers, he has yet to find them, but i heard he is looking for them on golf courses all over the world.

                      That one was fantastic!! If there was such a thing as my favorite downhiller, it would diffently be Klammer.

                      Strange thing I saw this year in a HS girls 4*8, the lead off runner walked the last 100m before the hand off. Then she stood at the edge of the track with her arms crossed for the rest of the race. Can we say, Attitude!!

                            Oliver McCall also had some sort of huge growth sticking out of his forehead after taking a couple of right hands from Evander Holyfield.

                            Also watched a boxer's mother jump into the ring and beat her son's opponent with her shoe.

                            Is bullfighting a sport? I loved watching that bull de-pants this guy.

                              There have been more than a few collapses near the end of a race, but the 2 most riveting ones I remember are Jim Peters in the 1954 Empire Games Marathon, and Bob Soth in the 1959 US-USSR 10K.
